A great tour of the Valley. The buildings were incredible - in both the construction and design. Making them earthquake proof, the skills of the stonemasons have to be seen to be believed.

We spent one night there while visiting Machupichu. Incredible town. Nice restaurants and shops. Beautiful views. Highly recommended if you want to take a true break from your daily rush. Everyone is nice and plenty of tourists.

I visited the Valle Sagrado twice. The first time was with a tour operator. It started late as they were hopping us from one bus to another. The first stop was a shopping stop- which was unnecessary. What was included were Moray, Maras Salt flats...More
